The Composer is Dead

APO The Composer is Dead Police Lineup

The Composer is Dead

The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) has launched a homicide investigation following reports that the composer is dead. On Saturday 6 October, APO is bringing all 72 musicians to the Bruce Mason Centre for questioning, to discover who is responsible. What exactly took place on that well-orchestrated evening?

The Composer is Dead

The Composer is Dead, with music by Nathaniel Stookey and words by Lemony Snicket, is a murder mystery story in which every musician and their instrument is guilty…until they can prove themselves innocent. It plays at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna, on Saturday 6 October.

Audience members will follow the clues as the Inspector interrogates each section of the orchestra on their whereabouts on the night of the murder. Where exactly were the violins? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a wee bit too boisterously?

Written by Lemony Snicket with music composed by Nathaniel Stookey, this symphonic murder mystery is an exciting and entertaining way to learn more about the instruments in the orchestra.

The Composer is Dead will play two sessions on Saturday 6 October – at 2pm and 4pm – and the concert programme also includes Mussorgsky’s Night on the Bare Mountain and Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre


When and Where: Sat 6 October, 2.00pm and 4.00pm at Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna or 0800 111 999
